Save it.

The entries look like this:

Configuration File /var/adm/sulog
MO 02/18 14:21 + pts/0 nrocha-root
TU 02/19 14:45 - pts/0 root-nrocha
WE 02/20 19:47 + pts/0 amaria-nrocha

  • The first three columns show the time the event occurred.
  • The fourth column shows a - for failed access and a + for successful access.
  • The fifth column shows which port the access was made from.
  • The last column shows the name of the user who tried to switch users and the switched user.
